Endowment Fund

Established in 2000, the endowment is ILA's main vehicle for long-term financial stability and growth.

Interest from the endowment is used to support the overall goals of the association, with the principal retained in a reserve fund. Primary sources of endowment growth are direct contributions, the Illinois Library Luminaries program, and investment gains. Current assets are valued at approximately $200,000.
